- Here on the blog: Leave a comment below with your reaction to chapter 1 and/or the video. In addition, let me know in your comment if you also did #3 below. To avoid unwanted spam (as opposed to "wanted spam"?) please do not leave your email address in the comments.
- On Twitter: Tweet a link to this blog post, mentioning the SHINE excerpt and the video. Include my username (@jsmithready) and the hashtag #SHINEtease. Earn an extra chance by sporting the SHINE Twitter avatar, found on my Twitter profile.
- On YouTube: Go to the SHINE teaser video's YouTube page, leave a comment, and click the thumbs-up icon below the video to "like" it (or dislike it if you want).
- Starting tomorrow morning, KiltandKeeley.com are having their "biggest giveaway ever." (EDITED TO ADD: Holy WOW, go check out what they're giving away to everyone who pre-orders SHINE--the most adorable Zach & Logan trading cards!) They're also holding a different SHADE/SHIFT/SHINE discussion each Monday/Wednesday/Friday during April in preparation for the big May 1 event. (EDITED TO ADD: The first discussion, about whether you'd want to see ghosts, is up now!)
- I'll be at the RT Booklovers Convention April 11-15. I'll post my specific schedule here later this week, but if you click on that link and do a find for "Jeri," you'll see 5 events, and that's not even including the giant Book Fair. I'm a busy, busy girl.
- Speaking of appearances, Team Kilt Con planning is underway! Keep an eye out for the latest news on the world's first SHADE fan gathering (May 18-19, Minneapolis, MN). The gorgeous hotel has been chosen, and there'll be more big announcements later this week.
